I knew it was over when Reyes' coach told him that he 'loved him'. Nothing wrong with that, but he hadn't said much else emphatically.

He should have spelled out the situation and emphasized every struggle that he has been through in life, then explained that the next five minutes will define your lion heart. There is no quit, there is no tomorrowland, there is no pain from no man that will end your desire to be champion.

 

 

 

...and then tell him that you love him.

I had it 3-2, Reyes. I don't mind the decision as the champ should get the nod unless it was taken from him. But 4-1 is laughable. And if you are going to give credit for takedown, then give credit for an escape.

Also Reyes wasn't moving backwards or avoiding the fight. He was moving side to side which is what you are supposed to do. Jones was not initiating anymore than Reyes. 

Good fight. We should definitely run that one back.

A takedown will always be > an escape. How fast or dramatic an escape should close the margin.

The champ was really pressing those last two rounds and scoring.

Reyes is the only one to blame for his cardio.

Dominick Reyes is the current LHW champ.

 

Also, between Gus 1, and Santos, he's got the most convincing win over Jones, whereas those other decisions were honest coinflips

Just realized the last time Jones looked good was the 2nd Gustafson fight... "Coincidentally" the last time he was popped for doping but then let off by changing the venue last second. Looks like Bones isn't the best unless he's doping.

Yeah, anyone they'll spend the money to move the entire venue for to allow to cheat they'll definitely fix the scoring for to allow to win.

Here's how I see Diego Sanchez taking the pussy way out. He's earned it. Most importantly he doubles his purse in one of his final fights. And he is not a loser in front of a home crowd, sort of.

Yeah I love Diego's dumbass. Kind of shocked he bitched out given his history, but then again at this point in his career I don't really blame him. Probably the first time in his fighting career he used his head over his heart.

Pulled a Cerrone. Taking shots so go ahead and bow out and collect the check. That's just the stage in their careers they are both in.

I hope you are not referring to blowing his broken nose.

No, taking a few shoulder shots from McGregor and going into turtle mode. He was backing down and shell shocked before he took the kick. The fight with Ferguson he was still actually trying to fight through it but I believe after that is the point he said fuck this I'm just going to cash grab from now on. Can't blame him.
